Charles's first year as a Chief was hardly in the spotlight; as a backup to halfback Larry Johnson, Charles rushed only 67 times for 357 yards. His breakout season came the following year in 2009. In his second year, Charles rushed 190 times for 1,120 yards, despite only starting 10 games after Johnson was suspended. Shortly thereafter, Johnson was released, leaving Charles as Kansas City's starting halfback. Over the next several seasons he would make four Pro Bowls and two All-Pro teams, and would lead the league in rushing touchdowns in 2013. However, injuries would take their toll and lead to him appearing in just five games in 2015 and 2016, and he was eventually released by the team.

Charles then briefly played for the Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars. He is the all-time leader in yards per carry among players with at least 1,000 carries with 5.38 yards per carry.[2]

Early yearsEdit

Charles has reported being diagnosed with a learning disability as a child, having difficulty reading, and being mocked and teased. In 2015, he shared his experience including being invited to participate in the Special Olympics: "[...] I was afraid. I was lost. When I was a boy, I had trouble reading. I found out I had a learning disability. People made fun of me. They said I would never go anywhere. But I learned I can fly. When I was 10 years old, I had a chance to compete in the Special Olympics. That's right, the Special Olympics gave me my first chance to discover the talent I did not know that I had. When I competed in the Special Olympics, I found out just how fast I was. I stood high on the podium, getting the gold medal in track and field."[3][4]

Charles attended and played high school football for Memorial High School of Port Arthur, Texas.[5] As a junior, he ran for 2,051 yards and 25 touchdowns while leading Memorial to the 5A Division II quarterfinals.[6] He was named first team all-state by the Texas Sports Writers Association and second team all-state by the Associated Press.[7]

Charles followed up his stellar junior season by rushing for 2,056 yards and 25 touchdowns during his senior year with the Titans.[8] The Associated Press named him to their first team all-state squad and he was declared the Houston Chronicle area offensive MVP. Charles was also named to the 2005 Parade All-America Football Team[9] and was the District 22-5A Player of the Year both his junior and senior year. Charles participated in the 2005 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.[10]

Charles is a two-time recipient of the Willie Ray Smith Award, which is given to the southeast Texas offensive MVP.[11]

College careerEdit

TrackEdit

Charles was a standout track athlete at Port Arthur (TX) Memorial. In the summer between his sophomore and junior years, Charles won the bronze medal in the 400m hurdles at the 2003 World Youth Championships in Athletics.[12] He went on to win the 110m hurdles and 300m hurdles Texas 5A state championships with times of 13.69 and 36.03 seconds, respectively, his senior year.

On March 11, 2006, Charles placed fourth in the NCAA 60-meter indoor track and field championship finals. On May 14, 2006, Charles captured his first conference title and the third Big 12 100-meter title for Texas by winning the event in 10.23 at the Big 12 outdoor meet. He led the 200 meter race after the preliminary round but elected not to participate in the final, as Texas had the Big 12 team title well in hand. On June 10, at the NCAA outdoor competition, Charles took fifth place in the 100 meter finals, edging out UTEP's stand-out sprinter Churandy Martina (sixth place), who earlier in the year ran a 9.76 (wind-aided) 100-meters. Charles also placed seventh in the 200 meter finals, and ran the third leg of the 4 × 100 Texas Longhorn relay team, earning a fifth place in the finals. Charles's efforts helped the Longhorns earn a third place showing for the men's track and field team, the highest since a second-place finish at the 1997 NCAA finals. Thus, Charles completed his first collegiate track season as a four-time All-American (60m indoor, 100m outdoor, 200m outdoor, 4 × 100 m relay outdoor).

FootballEdit

Charles attended and played college football for the University of Texas from 2005 to 2007 under head coach Mack Brown.[16][17]

2005 seasonEdit

In his true freshman season with the Longhorns, Charles was an instant contributor in a crowded backfield that included Vince Young as a dual-threat quarterback.[18] In his collegiate debut against Louisiana-Lafayette, he had 14 carries for 135 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown in the 60–3 victory.[19] Two weeks later, against Rice, he had 16 carries for 189 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns in the 51–10 victory.[20] On October 8, in the Red River Showdown against Oklahoma, he had nine carries 116 rushing yards and a touchdown in the 45–12 victory.[21] Texas ended up going 11–0 in the regular season to earn a berth in the Big 12 Championship Game against Colorado.[22] Against the Buffaloes, he had seven carries for 62 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns in the 70–3 victory.[23] The victory put Texas in the National Championship Game in the Rose Bowl against the USC Trojans. He had five carries for 34 rushing yards in the 41–38 victory as Texas claimed a perfect season and National Championship.[24]

Overall, Charles rushed 119 times for 878 yards and 11 touchdowns, averaging 7.4 yards per carry.[25] He finished second on the team in rushing attempts and rushing yards and third in rushing touchdowns.[26]

2006 seasonEdit

In the 2006 season, the Longhorns' rushing offense dropped significantly from the prior year going from 274.9 yards per game to 162.6 yards per game.[18][27] Despite the down year for the rushing offense and sharing the backfield with Selvin Young, Charles's production remained consistent compared to his freshman year. He went over 100 rushing yards once, which was against in-state rival Rice in the Longhorns' third game, a 52–7 victory.[28] He found the endzone on the ground twice on November 11 against Kansas State in a 45–42 loss.[29] He had a 72-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Colt McCoy in the 2006 Alamo Bowl 26–24 victory over Iowa.[30] Overall, he finished with 831 rushing yards, seven rushing touchdowns, 18 receptions, 183 receiving yards, and one receiving touchdown.[31]

2007 seasonEdit

In the summer prior to the 2007 season, some observers believed he was the fastest college running back in the upcoming season. CBS SportsLine said, "Track star Jamaal Charles has the potential at running back to enjoy a break-out season and possesses the kind of breakaway speed that lead to an 80-yard rush and a 70-yard catch last season."[32] Athlon Sports remarked, "Over the last two years, running back Jamaal Charles has run for 1,702 yards at 6.2 yards per carry with 18 touchdowns despite starting only four games. He has the job to himself and should have a breakout year."[33]

In 2007, Charles rushed for 1,619 yards, with an average of 6.3 yards per carry.[34] Charles started the season with 27 carries for 112 rushing yards and a touchdown in a 21–13 victory over Arkansas State.[35] In the next game, a 34–13 victory over rival TCU, he had 22 carries for 134 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown.[36] In the next game, a 35–32 away victory at Central Florida, he had 22 carries for 153 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown.[37] In the next game, he had 14 carries for 72 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns in a 58–14 victory over Rice.[38] Despite his successes early in the season, Mack Brown and Greg Davis hinted that Charles could face less playing time as a result of his fumbling problems.[39] Charles said that he felt a deep remorse over his fumbles and felt that he is the biggest reason the team lost to the Oklahoma Sooners in the 2007 Red River Shootout. Texas running backs coach Ken Rucker and former Longhorn running back Earl Campbell both worked with Charles on his ball handling. Greg Davis said he wanted to get the ball to Charles "in space", on pitches and passes, instead of in heavy traffic up the center.[40]

On October 28, 2007, Charles rushed 33 times for 290 yards in the 28–25 victory, the most ever against the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the fourth-highest total in Texas Longhorns history.[41][42] His 216 yards in the fourth quarter were just six shy of the NCAA record for a single quarter set by the University of Washington Huskies's Corey Dillon in 1996. For these accomplishments, Charles won a fan vote for AT&T All-America Player of the Week.[43] He followed that up with 16 carries for 180 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns in a 38–35 victory over Oklahoma State.[44] On November 10, against rival Texas Tech, he had 23 carries for 174 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown in the 59–43 victory.[45] In the Holiday Bowl against Arizona State, he had 27 carries for 161 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns in the 52–34 victory.[46]

Charles decided to forgo his senior season with Texas in favor of joining the NFL as a professional football player in the 2008 NFL Draft.[47] This decision came after earlier statements that he would stay with Texas. In November, Charles said he would return for his senior season rather than enter professional football in the NFL.[48] Sources reported in December 2007 that Charles and fellow Longhorn Jermichael Finley had filed paperwork with the NFL to evaluate how high they might be drafted if they decided enter professional football in the NFL Draft instead of returning for their senior season. Mack Brown did not comment about specific players but said, "We always try to help our guys get as much information as possible when it comes to the NFL. We encourage and help them go through the process... All of our underclassmen have told us they will be coming back, but if you're playing well enough to be considered an NFL prospect, going through the process can only help you better understand it and realize what you need to work on to improve your status."[49] Charles said he would not go pro unless he was predicted to be chosen in the first round of the draft.[50][51] After the Holiday Bowl, Charles said, "Right now, I'm probably coming back. I didn't think I did that good in the game. Next year maybe I'll be up for the Heisman. I will come back."[52] From 2000–2007, the Longhorns have had seven players taken in the Top 10 draft picks by the NFL, more than any other school.[51] On January 2, Charles announced he received and was happy with the results of his draft evaluation and that he would declare for the draft.[47]

Despite skipping his senior year, Charles ranked fourth in the list of total-rushing yards by a Texas player, behind Ricky Williams, Cedric Benson, and Earl Campbell, with 3,328 yards.[53] Williams and Campbell each won the Heisman Trophy in their senior season.[54]

The Kansas City Chiefs selected Charles in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft with the 73rd overall pick, acquired from the Minnesota Vikings in the Jared Allen trade. He was the ninth running back to be selected that year.[58] Charles thought he would go early in the second round but said he had no regrets about leaving college early.[59] Charles was expected to begin his career as the Chiefs' No. 3 back behind Larry Johnson and Kolby Smith.[60]

2010 seasonEdit

In the 2010 season, Charles shared the majority of backfield carries with Thomas Jones.[82] The Chiefs opened up the 2010 season with a 21–14 win over their division rival, the San Diego Chargers. In that game, Charles played a pivotal role, including a 56-yard rushing score.[83] On October 31, against the Buffalo Bills, he had 22 carries for 177 rushing yards in the 13–10 victory.[84] On November 28, against the Seattle Seahawks, he had 22 carries for 173 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown in the 42–24 victory.[85] In the following game, he had 116 rushing yards in the 10–6 victory over the Denver Broncos.[86] in Week 15, against the St. Louis Rams, he had 11 carries for 126 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown in the 27–13 victory.[87] Charles finished the season with 1,467 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns on only 230 carries.

He was voted to his first career Pro Bowl.[88][89] His 6.38 yards per carry average for the season was the second-highest average in NFL history,[dubious ] second only to Hall of Famer Jim Brown, only two one-hundredths of a yard off of the record pace set by the Browns legend.[90]

On December 11, 2010, the Chiefs reached an agreement with Charles on a five-year, $32.5 million deal that included $13 million guaranteed.[91] Charles made his postseason debut in the Wild Card Round against the Baltimore Ravens.

2011 seasonEdit

Charles's 2011 season was short lived. In a Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills, Charles rushed for 56 yards on 10 carries and had a receiving touchdown.[96] The following week, against the Detroit Lions, Charles ran for 27 yards on two carries, before suffering an ACL injury.[97] Chiefs head coach Todd Haley confirmed the next day that Charles would miss the remainder of the 2011 season.[98] Charles was officially placed on injured reserve on September 19.[99]

2012 seasonEdit

Coming off of an ACL injury in 2011, Charles had an All-Pro caliber season, running for 1,509 yards and five touchdowns. Once again, Charles proved to be very efficient running the ball as he managed a 5.3 yard per carry average on the year.[100] In the season opening 40–24 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, he had 87 rushing yards on 16 carries in his first action back from injury.[101] In Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints, Charles ran a career-high 33 times for 233 rushing yards, scored a rushing touchdown, and caught six passes for 55 yards to earn his first AFC Offensive Player of the Week nod.[102][103] Charles became the first player in franchise history to rush for at least 200 rushing yards and have at least 50 receiving yards in the same game.[104] His 91-yard rushing touchdown in the third quarter was the longest rushing play in franchise history, a feat later tied by Damien Williams in the 2019 season.[105][106] In Week 5 against Baltimore Ravens, Charles had 31 carries for 140 rushing yards in the 9–6 loss.[107] However, in Week 8, Charles carried the ball only five times for four rushing yards in a 26–16 loss to the Oakland Raiders.[108] When asked the reason why, head coach Romeo Crennel said "Now, that I'm not exactly sure, either."[109] In Week 10, against the Pittsburgh Steelers, he had 23 carries for 100 rushing yards in the 16–13 loss.[110] On November 25, in Week 12 against the Denver Broncos, he had 23 carries for 107 yards in the 17–9 loss.[111] In a 30–7 loss to the Cleveland Browns later in the season, Charles carried the ball 18 times for 165 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown.[112] On December 2, against the Carolina Panthers, he had 27 carries for 127 rushing yards in the 27–21 victory.[113] In a 20–13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts, Charles carried the ball 22 times for 226 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown.[114] He became the second player in franchise history, joining Larry Johnson, to record two games with at least 200 rushing yards in a single season.[115] Charles's performance was his second career game with over 200 rushing yards while averaging more than ten yards a carry. He became only the second player in NFL history to accomplish the feat, after Adrian Peterson, who accomplished his feat in the 2012 season as well.[116] Charles carried the ball at least 20 times in six games, and in each of those games managed at least 100 yards. This has been a trend throughout his entire career, in every game he has carried the ball 20 times, he has gained at least 100 yards.
